With this perfume we should dream about Bresil, about exotic fruits and sensual dances, about "urban erotica" and the fragrance is about all that - a big nectarine (or any other fruit smelling of juicy peach + some oxane/cassis note) growing on rose petals and breathing a fresh soda sensation. It is said that young female breasts smell of white peach and this perfume is about all that. The peach before Femme. It gave me 2 strong images - one was the scene from the movie Le Parfum with the virgin and the yellow fruits, interpreted by Christophe Laudamiel in his coffret and the other is a dessert. It is called "Le tétons de Venus" - a white peach boiled in raspberry syrup served with several sweet sauces (chocolate also) and some hot spices on top. An uncomplicated fragrance for sorbet lovers.
2 - Lucas Sieuzac "Wicken 3000" for Bernhard Willhelm
Rather strange in the first moments when you wonder if there is only alcohol, it starts with the perfect illustration of "the scent of nothing". It smells white, empty, pure, steel. No man is living in this cold environment of high altitude design or "futurotopia" year 3000, or even the modern architecture. In fact it has the strange feeling of Japanese white contemporary architecture, of those photos with unusual geometry and no human presence. The perfume seems to be built around lily of the valley aldehydes and alcohols, with an almost invisible white rose and transparent musk. It's like an oxygen mask in the perfume, a white shape in too much light to see the details. It seems to share several aspects with the Givaudan Bloom experiment. A design approach where everything is minimal. Call it Lilial, Bourgeonal, Floralozone, etc... it's simple the idea of purity!
Red also my Illicit sex note (the best in the collection, so far) with its special rose/aldehyde/incense/woody note.
